Nieuwenhuis pulls off sly photobomb

There’s a certain art to photobombing a live television
interview.

The photobomber wants to be seen, of course, but also wants to
be subtle enough so as to not be obnoxious. He wants to be funny,
but not stupid. Chris Bosh
knows how it’s done. So does the
Cincinnati Bearcats baseball team. And
Nick Saban.

Now you can add New York Mets outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis to
that illustrious list, too.

Technically, it was Nieuwenhuis, David Aardsma and LaTroy
Hawkins who all put on a show behind Jeremy Hefner while Hefner was
being interviewed by SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt on Tuesday night.
But Nieuwenhuis’ goofy-faced,
Bosh-esque submarine approach to the photobomb
was executed to perfection and deserves to be recognized.

Here’s a gif of the epic interruption,

Well done, Mr. Nieuwenhuis. Well done.
